Help Save Minnesota Wetlands Today

BENEFITING: Clean Water Fund

THE STORY:

Minnesota’s wetlands provide critical habitat for dozens of plants, animals, and bird species including Sandhill Cranes, Mallard Ducks, and Sedge Wrens. Wetlands also provide natural flood protection, recharge groundwater, and purify surface water across our state.

To protect these natural resources and the services they provide, the Wetland Conservation Act (WCA) was enacted in 1991. WCA has received strong bipartisan support for over two decades in protecting Minnesota’s remaining wetlands, promising no net loss of remaining wetlands by requiring lost acres to be replaced.

On a local level, WCA is implemented by local government units, counties, soil and water conservation districts, watershed management organizations, and townships. The Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR) serves as the state-wide administrator, with the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) as an enforcement body.
